10 Promising ORIGINAL Films for the Rest of 2016

3. Don’t Breathe – August 26, 2016

There are a few original horror films coming out over the next few months, but the one that has us most petrified is the low-budget, high-concept horror Don’t Breathe. It stars Jane Levy as a young woman who is trapped in a house with her friends, whilst being pursued by a psychotic blind-man. Playing the blind man is, of course, badass Stephen Lang who has Daredevil-like enhanced senses and uses his particular set of skills to brutally murder all trespassers.

It’s a great idea and the trailer showed there’s a lot of potential, armrest-ripping set-pieces in Don’t Breathe. It also comes from Fede Alvarez, the director of The Evil Dead remake from 2013 and that showed he had a natural talent for brutal deaths and genuine scares. Horror-fans should definitely have this movie on their radar.


4. Morgan – September 2, 2016

What would you get if Splice and Ex_Machina had a lovechild and the son of Ridley Scott, Luke Scott, directed that lovechild? You’d get Morgan, which follows Kate Mara’s ethical journey about artificial life. It’s an intriguing premise, even if the latest trailer seemed to spoil the entire plot. It admittedly seems like it’s coming out too soon after Alex Garland’s Ex_Machina to feel wholly original, but it’ll be interesting to see if Luke Scott can live up to the legacy of his father.
